Both (i) and (ii) are strong.


Both arguments here are equally strong. Argument I talks about the possibility of favoritism which is a major issue. It may beat the entire purpose of assessing students; questions on its fairness can be raised. Argument II is strong because it is very important for the teaching faculty to have some control over the assessment of students. Thus, 'Both (i) and (ii)' is the correct answer.
